9FXEY engine numbers

Post by GTOGREEN1969 »

I am trying to work out how high the 9FXEY engines went to in production numbers. In Australia we went up to around 9FXEY 56500 in Oct 1971. Did any UK built cars have higher numbers? eg 9FXEY 57000. I have a feeling that you guys swapped over to the 12H much earlier.

The highest I've seen in a UK built S is 9F-XE-Y 55460
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

Thanks everyone. Looks like the 1971 Aussie Clubman GT was the last car built with the 9FXEY prefix. Accounting for a few spare engines i would estimate the production stopped in the mid 56000s. The question was for someone else that has a 9FXEY engine in the 58000 range so either they have misread the 6 as an 8 or it has been restamped with an 8.

I have 316 in a November 71 GT, it was during that same month they went over to the 1200 prefixes on the Cooper S Blocks, fitted to these cars.
